First Line: O sweetheart, hear you
Last Line: Shall have rest.
Subject(s): Friendship; Disappointment; Consolation; Desire

O Sweetheart, hear you

Your lover's tale;

A man shall have sorrow

When friends him fail.

For he shall know then

Friends be untrue

And a little ashes

Their words come to.

But one unto him

Will softly move

And softly woo him

In ways of love.

His hand is under

Her smooth round breast;

So he who has sorrow

Shall have rest.
